Residential Air Conditioning Replacement
What To Expect During Your A/C Installation
Replacing your home’s cooling system usually takes just a day or two. We explain all the steps that will take place from removing your old cooling system to the final testing of your new air conditioning system. All trash associated with the installing your new a/c unit will be hauled away, and disposed of properly. Nothing is left behind for you to deal with. After the a/c installation is complete, a third party “duct tester” can verify that any duct leakage is within California Title 24 standards. This extra step insures that your new cooling equipment is working at peak efficiency.
Having a construction crew in your home during the removal and installation process can be a bit disrupting to your regular routine because taking out your old a/c unit will require some drilling, hammering and probably some grunting (but no swearing - we promise). We strive to make this process as pleasant as possible for you. Prior to the installation date, we will discuss the installation process with you, and let you know if there is anything that should be moved, or covered, prior to the start of your new air conditioning system installation.
TMC Heating & Cooling offers a “No Burn” Guarantee, plus a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. This means we can not give you a exceptionally low price to entice you to work with us, we have to give you accurate prices. We will never come back to you in the middle of the installation process, to tell you we missed something, and you need to pay more to get the job done. We believe that you deserve honest quotes. So, the price you see on your estimate, is the price you pay period. Any unseen issues that come up later are our responsibility, not yours. Plus, we make sure that you’re 100% satisfied with your new air conditioning system when we’re done! We can provide you with parts and labor warranties up to ten years on new air conditioning equipment installations.

Choosing The Right HVAC Company
Because it is a rather large expense, when it’s time to replace your air conditioning equipment, you’ll naturally want to be confident that you are making the right choices. Here are our recommendations:
* Work with a licensed contractor with a good reputation.
* Insist on a complete analysis of what is needed for the job, there’s more to it than replacing a couple pieces of equipment.
* Be sure you understand what the warranty covers and for how long. Many models of quality HVAC equipment will have a warranty for up 10 years on parts (but not labor). Ask your HVAC contractor if they offer a warranty to cover labor costs in the event there is equipment failure during the warranty period.
* Work with a company that will help you with the paperwork involved such as rebate applications and required building permits.
